The old saying that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover is ever so true for Wake Technical Community College’s new Public Safety Campus.


With 60,000 plus square feet of classrooms, offices, computer labs and even a weight and workout room, the facility now hosts the new fire service two year degree program, along with the two year law enforcement program. The campus has a mock courtroom, a holding cell for detention training and a simunitions room that has movable walls.

There is a command and operations area with break out rooms and interrogation rooms. These rooms can be monitored by closed circuit video. There are dedicated classrooms for fire in-service training and a state of the art mobile driving simulator that can be used for fire and law enforcement. An upgraded firearms training simulator is also available.

This is just another great facility that is there for us. All of us in the field of public safety should be proud of what our community college system is doing around the state. Many states do not share this luxury for their public safety personnel. Please continue to promote and support your local community colleges.
